Wife strippers.......   :dancingbanana:

 

I'd probably get slapped though!

 

Not a lot of tools being bought lately..  Just replacing busted or lost ones..  

 

Been spending lots of $$$ on engine and lawn mower parts of late..

Pop dropped off battery booster pack he picked up at Harbor Freight. Never had one but I’m sure taking it along at
shows will come in handy. He always had one that’s why I never had one. Thanks pop.

Not a tool I bought, but made.I have some axle seals to replace on the 316 and needed a driver. I have a big chunk of 1" +/-  thick nylon (plastic). Used a 2.125" hole saw to cut out a piece. Measures 1.94". Tapped the center hole for a 3/8" bolt. Should make a decent seal driver.

This tool was a present from my BIL.  Morse Starrett cable cutter.  It weights about 15 pounds.  You put the steel cable on the v-blade and hit it with a 10 pound sledge.  He gave this to me when I found several steel cable at the garbage dump.  They're about 50 ft. in length and he said I needed this when I needed to cut them down.  It's a great old tool made in the USA!

After having a hard time drilling out the high grade broken bolts in Steve's batwing mower the other day (had to do several bit sharpenings), I ordered a set of M42 Cobalt drill bits, 1/16" through 1/2".  Not cheap, but they will do much better, and should be worth it.

Got a 1/4" drive inch lb. torque wrench for small engine work.  Converting inc lbs to ft. lbs. is a pint and hard to set it very close on the 1/2 inch drive.  Haven't used it yet but will.

I got a 1/4 in dr torque wrench. Goes to 200 in lbs I believe. Comes in quite handy on the small engines.

Just ordered a Warn drill winch.  Ebay was having a 20% discount sale and I couldn't resist.

Should help me when I get the tractor stuck or anything else these days.  I find the older I get the weaker I get.

Not exactly a tool, but I recently bought 100' 10/3 SJTW extension cord from Sears online for $80 and free shipping.  Also picked up a plug for my dryer outlet and a receptacle for my welder. about $20 off Amazon.  Cut off the 15 amp plugs, added the new ones and now for about $100, I have 220v to my garage when I want to play with my welder.
